Default Headlight Lens???

I have a 1997 Acura 3.0CL. One of the headlights is clear but the other is cloudy. I could scratch off some of the yellow coating on it, but most of it is stuck on there. I tried putting PlasticX on it but it's temporary and the rain made drip down the pain and it stained, which is something I need another answer for! But what do I do about that headlight lens without buying a new one for $275?

don't buff the lense on your car...some Acura's of different yrs have the same problem.Look under re-calls and or ask Acura for a discount. (yes they do give discounts to people who have problems..)

What is there yellow coating on it? Lenses....well, you could take it off and try washing it with industrial strength amonia. It should take anything off!

I got some stuff called "Head Light Lens Restorer" at AutoZone. It did a great job on a '00 Civic!! Wipe it on, wipe it off! You may have to do 2 or three applications if it is real bad.

check a junkyard for the part or try ebay motors, either way it will have to be replaced.

PlasticX works fine. do it when it doesnt rain and geta buffer to it. mines lloked new when i finished mine and you should scratch it youll only do more damage to it, you can also try neverdull. or 2000 grit sand paper and wet sand then polish but thats a risk youll have to take on your own!...oh i just rembered a temp fix use ATF
